Music to my ears

Got a request for help from Vikki this evening. A folk musician she knows from the States is coming to the UK soon, and will be teaching some classes, including one on memorizing songs. What usually happens is that people say they're hopeless at learning things by heart. Mike then gets them to reciting the Oath of Alliegence, and as they've all repeated this daily at school, they join in, and realize that they can memorize things.
  However, as Vikki pointed out, a group of Brits are unlikely to know the Oath, so she was wondering what would make a suitable alternative. Something, not too simple and repetitive, that the majority of British adults would be able to repeat by heart.

I put the question to the D&D group, and the top suggestions were:
The theme to Dad's Army
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
The Lord's Prayer

Bohemian Rhapsody was also mentioned.

Any other suggestions ?

No idea, but I still sing my alphabet when I'm trying to remember the order (I'm dyslexic) and it always works. Same with rainbows, I sing the "I can sing a rainbow song" to sort out the colour order as I never remember the Richard of York thing.
